Curriculum

NDignite Connection participants are expected to participate in six online sessions per semester in our Online Learning Center.  Each session features a live webcast and an activity related to the week's topic.  The broadcasts are archived and retained for the students to review after the live show.  Online activities are not meant to be homework, but are designed to keep students thinking about each concept after the session has ended.
